Description:Basidiomata in small clusters, up to 40 mm high. Pileus 20–30 mm diam., thin and leathery, wavy with inrolled margin, young entirely hirsute-rugose, remaining lacerate-fibrillose to cottony in the center, elsewhere slightly rugose but not developing well-delimited appressed scales, a pale brown greyish with dark brown center, very early on becoming narrowly but strongly depressed in the center. Stipe slender, 6 mm diam., 20–-30 mm high, rapidly elongating while pileus is still small, paler or concolorous to pileus margin, basally sometimes white, distinctly fistulose inside. Hymenophore composed of very crowded (up to 40/cm), low but comparatively thick and blunt gill folds, 1 mm high, repeatedly forking, frequently fissuring over their full height, yellowish with brownish tint except near the extreme margin where they are warm egg-yolk yellow. Context leathery, whitish in the pileus, almost concolorous with the stipe surface, yellowing slowly. Odor agreeable, typical. Taste mild. Spore print not obtained. Basidiospores short-ellipsoid to ellipsoid, (5.8–)6.0–6.36–6.7(–7.1) × (3.9–)4.0–4.27–4.5(–5.0) µm, Q = (1.3–)1.4–1.49–1.6(–1.7), smooth, hyaline. Basidia short and narrow, 30–38 × 6–8 µm, mostly five-spored. Subhymenium pseudoparenchymatic, but not strongly inflated, being composed of short, barely inflated cells that are slightly wider than the basidium base. Cystidia none. Pileipellis composed of almost thin-walled to slightly refringent hyphal extremities, mostly 4–8 µm wide; terminal cells rather short, mostly 20–40(–50) µm long, subcylindrical, regular in outline, broadly rounded at the apex; cell walls refringent, but not thick-walled. Clamp connections absent.
